I was surfing through the auctions in dropcatch.com and I found an auction for a english dictionary word "syncretize". I am a newbie in domaining and I have an impression that ALL dictionary words are taken and will be extremely expensive to acquire. But, clearly it is not that case here. The auction is open for public and the highest bid seems to be only 60 bucks. I can think of only two reasons 1. I have stumbled upon a rare opportunity. 2. Some of the dictionary words like these are uncommon in practice, hence are devalued. Here is a link to the auction on NJ - dropcatch.com/Domain/SYNCRETIZE.COM Let me know if I am wrong to assume the second reason.
